She hasn’t even been home a full evening when Emma Craven [Bojana Novakovic] is killed by a shotgun blast fired by a man in a ski mask – right in front of her father, police detective Thomas Craven [Mel Gibson]. His search for vengeance turns up disquieting things – like the possibility of Emma being a terrorist, or the possibility that she might have been about to blow the whistle on the company for which she worked, for making nuclear weapons.
Based on the ten-year old BBC mini-series of the same name, Edge of Darkness marks Gibson’s first appearance in a movie in almost eight years. While it doesn’t have the scope of the mini-series – especially in terms of the politics and illicit nukes angles, it does work as a revenge thriller for a few reasons…
The eighties had a lot of action heroes – enough for two tiers of them… enough to churn out B-movie action flicks in plain, twisted, ironic and even extra-toasty. Tier one included names like Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, and Arnold. Tier two included the likes of Jean-Claude Van Damme and the star of Driven to Kill, Steven Segal.
Where Van Damme has re-invented himself through the very meta JCVD, Segal has, after trying to make movies that say stuff, returned to what he does best – revenge fantasies. Driven to Kill finds him playing a Russian writer named Ruslan who writes – as a former colleague [i.e. gangster] calls them, “snuff books” [presumably the Russian mob equivalent of The Mack Bolan, Executioner series].
